ABOUT THE EVENT

SUSTAINABLE CONSTRUCTION FOR CIRCULAR, INTELLIGENT & INCLUSIVE CITIES

This event is part of a series of 8 sector consultations in the 8 regions of Romania. The results of these meetings and workshops, concluding with the European conference, aim to shape a strategy such that, by 2030 Romania will be a circular economy leader in Central and South Eastern Europe.

The purpose of the conference is to involve experts from a wide range of industries and to highlight the best practices and models already implemented with the purpose to facilitate the transition of Romania towards a circular economy.

The agenda of the event will address the negative impacts climate change has on cities and potential solutions to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Objectives. Moreover, we propose to point out the best practices that local and regional authorities can implement so that to align with these objectives.
